8.7.8.7.


1
TREMBLING soul, behold thy Saviour,
Seated on the Father's throne;
Object of God's highest favour,
See Him, God's belovèd Son!
2
Once on earth in Bethlehem's manger,
As a holy Babe, He lay;
God come down, a heav'nly Stranger,
Love to sinners to display.
3
Sinner, see thy God beside thee,
In a servant's form come near,
Sitting, walking, talking with thee!
Sinai's mount no longer fear.
4
Onward still to Calv'ry moving,
Onward still He treads His way,
God the Father's will fulfilling,
Love to sinners to display.
5
Hearken to the woundrous story -
Jesus died and rose for thee;
God in heav'n now waits to save thee,
And, believing, thou art free.

A.P. Cecil (1841-1889)
